MILLEDGEVILLE — The intersection of South Wayne and Vinson Highway had some confusion when people realized they couldn't head further south. Drivers were forced to alter their normal Southside Milledgeville routes beginning at lunchtime Thursday.

A large gas leak required areas to be blocked off until later in the afternoon.

The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office requested that citizens avoid all areas south of Dairy Queen on Irwinton Road to its intersection with Allen Memorial Drive, as well as the area of Swint Avenue and Caraker Avenue to its intersection with South Elbert Street.

Atlanta Gas Light personnel worked to resolve the problem. Baldwin County Sheriff's and Fire personnel were also on scene.
